Steak
blue is redefining the steakhouse. You’ll find stunning decor, two high-energy indoor and outdoor bars, and seven unique private dining spaces, which can accommodate up to 420 guests. Add in a redesigned menu with much more to offer and you have a cooler, hipper kind of steakhouse.

blue is convenient to major highways leading from the Lehigh Valley, metro New Jersey, Philadelphia and the Poconos.

I highly recommend the Blue Grillhouse to anyone who is looking for a special dining experience. As I left my car, I was initially put-off by the joyful, but loud, happy hour still going on at the patio bar. I had hoped for a quieter setting for dinner, which is exactly what I found upon entering the restaurant. Service was good but not great - I believe our waiter may have been covering more tables than usual - so my ding is more about timeliness than professionalism. I was surprised to learn that the BGH offers a limited pre-fix, discounted, menu which only added to the overall value of this excellent restaurant. I eat out several times a week and have been to some of the better steakhouses in the northeast and would absolutely recommend the BGH to anyone seeking a great meal in a well appointed dining room.

Service outside was awesome. Waiter inside did not pay attention to it being a birthday celebration! I also included hat it was a birthday celebration in Open Table. Offered champagne and free dessert after bill was paid... Broccollini was broccoli and was suppose to be garlically. Horrible. Got credit for this. Maybe it was below my expectations because it was a Sunday, but it will be a long time before I go again...

According to the website there is a dress code of business casual, I had a brunch reservation and called the location to ask if the dress code also applies to Sunday brunch or is it just for normal service I was informed that there is a dress code of business casual for brunch however when I got there I was the second person in the location with my party and I’ve noticed that people were entering in jeans, Jean short, Sneakers, flip-flops, yoga pants, everything except what I was told my party and I were the only ones that were in business casual normally this would not be an issue except for the fact that I call the location and asked and spoke with someone who told me that yes there is a dress code if it is advertised on the website and when you call and you were told the same thing except only to find out when you get there that is Not the case I would have love to be comfortable as well just feel lied to. I think that was unprofessional

I don’t think the food was up to par with the prices. Would rather go somewhere else with better food and less expensive. Our waiter was excellent.

We had a great meal & also wonderful service at The Blue. My Crab Cakes were excellent had lots of crab meat unlike other places that use a lot of filler.
All of the staff, managers, & front desk greeters are terrific.

It is unfortunate to say; but, while service was incredible or food was just okay. We had a party of 3 and our bill prior to tip was $300. It was disappointing at that price point to leave saying our food was just okay. Phenomenal service and ambiance.

Great place. Nice decor. Very busy so it was a little more noisy than another time I was there. Food was delicious. Attentive staff. Definitely a great “special occasion” place. I’ll be back for sure.

Dinner was 1 1/2 hours start to finish. Of this time, twenty minutes was filled with the server trying to
upsell the menu. Food was just okay, and on par with food I prepare at home. I think the space is a good choice cocktails or as a reception, but would avoid as a place to dine for special occasions.

There were four of us dining at Blue for lunch last Thursday. Everting was wonderful with good food and good service from our server, Brian. It was much too cold in the restaurant though, but after asking to have the a/c turned down, it was perfect. FYI, other people complained also. Thanks for the adjustment.

Wish the menu was more varied. Leans to mostly meat items. Decided to have the pasta with spring vegetables. Quite good but was the only pasta offering on the menu. Fish offering was minor. Mostly hamburgers and steaks and so on. Would be nice to have grilled vegetables on the menu and more cheese choices, chicken and so on. Otherwise a pleasant experience with exceptional service and very attentive. Perhaps the lunch menu that we viewed is limited and maybe the dinner menu is more extensive. Next visit will be a dinner event. We'll have to see what the offerings are then.

I got the ribs which were amazing, my husband got shrimp and scallops over pasta and the next night, he spent most of his time puking, thinking it was the seafood since he didn’t eat much else that day.

The food was excellent . I would have preferred to sit in a booth, the room in the front (with all the windows) was boring at best. Our server was wonderful and took care of a serious food allergy for one of our group. We will come again.D!

We made dinner plans at this restaurant because it is very close to our grandson’s high school where he was playing opening night football. We ordered several different appetizers that were very good - cheese steak egg roll, grilled shrimp, bacon scallops and boneless buffalo wings.

But our rib eye steaks were terrible. When I asked the server for a steak with a larger end-cap, I was told it was not possible because the steaks are received in portion controlled packaging. When my guest and I received our steaks, we couldn’t’ cut the steaks with the steak knives. We quickly got new knives but they also couldn’t effectively slice through the steaks. The problem was that both steaks were rubbery and not at all tender. We complained at got a “I”m sorry you didn’t like you steak”. We paid our check in time to get to the game.

3rd times' a charm. Can't stop raving about the staff and food here. They made us feel special, from the manager stopping by to our server Jeremy (hope I spelled it right) who was extremely attentive. It's the small details that matter. If I lived closer I'd frequent more often. Thank you for making our anniversary special!

My girlfriend and I went to blue grillhouse for date night and were thrilled. The service was exceptional, the food was without rival, and the staff was very accommodating to my being in a wheelchair. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and would highly recommend blue. We were too full from dinner to enjoy dessert, but we do plan to return specifically for dessert soon.

The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the service is quick and polite. The alcoholic beverages left much to be desired. I felt the portion sizes did not equal the charged price. Overall I felt that this restaurant is overpriced for its product. I would not recommend a restaurant that I left hungry.
